Student Teaching During Hurricane Harvey

Shelby Ward, a senior from the McKay School of Education, was student teaching in Houston, Texas, during Hurricane Harvey.

Ward recounted her experiences before, during, and after Hurricane Harvey and the hardships Texans have been facing.

Back-to-school is traditionally a time for new pencils, red apples, and first day jitters. However, for student teachers in Texas this past August, going back to school was met with news of a hurricane that would cause extensive damage around the state. Hurricane Harvey hit between August 25, 2017, and September 3, 2017, four days into the new school year.
